The Lapis Global 5G & IoT 50 Dividend Yield Index is composed of 50 worldwide companies that are responsible for the build up and future operation of the fifth generation (5G) of wireless network technology. The 5G standard will be faster and enable the connection of more devices, which could encourage the development of new technological products and allow the Internet of Things (IoT) to make a breakthrough.
All companies in our equally weighted equity index have a market capitalization greater than USD 5 billion and 80% of them have paid uninterrupted and continuously increasing dividends over the last 5 years. A maximum of 20% of the companies included in our unique equity index do not apply a strict dividend payment policy and have paid their regular dividends for less than 5 years. Our rule-based criteria for selecting the most promising companies are applied during the quarterly rebalancing process (end of January, April, July, and October).
The Lapis Global 5G & IoT 50 Dividend Yield Index allows for a focused investment in companies that benefit from the roll-out of the 5G standard and the unstoppable advancement of the IoT megatrend. In the future, billions of smart devices are expected to be connected and able to communicate with each other. This will lead to an enormous volume of data, increased efficiency, lower costs and new business opportunities. The new 5G standard and the Internet of Things could fundamentally change the way people live and work.
